Light sculptures reminiscent of bubbling champagne

Melting, sculpting and combining with other materials: Regine Haunschmidt draws inspiration from the many diverse processing options of PLEXIGLAS® to create fascinating pieces of art.

“My work begins where that of polymer processors stops,” says Regine Haunschmidt. The Austrian artist heats up PLEXIGLAS® to the point where bubbles form in the material, thus giving her works the appearance of bubbling champagne. “These bubbles are absolutely unwanted in plastic processing,” says the 52-year-old. “Acrylic glass should normally be as immaculate as possible.”
